Fishing Sign To Yes Please Records

It’s official. Sydney duo FISHING have been reeled in by the YES PLEASE crew as the boys have just signed to the label!

Starting out in 2010, Doug Wright and Russell Fitzgibbon joined forces and starting writing melodic jams together, infused with blended samples, synthesisers and percussion. As a result, FISHING was born and could only be described as electronic, experimental and catchy as hell. To gain a better insight, the boys have described their music as if to say “your hand is in a toaster, but you’re also catching a lovely breeze from the ocean.”

They released their first single ‘OOOO’ two years ago and received love from both Pitchfork and FBi Radio almost instantly.

Since then, the boys have gone on to tour Australia and the UK extensively, as well as supporting the likes of SBTRKT, Richard In Your Mind and Dappled Cities, just to name a few. They’ve also worked their signature sound into their remixes for Cloud Control, Guerre, Alpine, Jonothan Boulet, Jinja Safari and Book of Ships.

Signing to the label that is already home to the beloved Oliver Tank and Guerre, FISHING will be releasing a 7” containing two sweet new tracks this Spring, available in Australia and New Zealand.

If you’re heading to BIGSOUND next week, catch the boys play the Magic City Stage Wednesday, 12th September.
